What’s a BDC Tracker?

Getting a grip on BDC performance can be hard, especially if you’re a BDC Manager attempting to optimize performance . One of the quickest ways to get a handle on where performance is, is to use a BDC Tracker. A BDC Tracker can help you understand key performance indicators, or KPI's, of your operation at a fundamental level, and help get rid of any extraneous noise you find in a typical CRM setup. To preface this exercise, it is a very manual process; the fact of the matter is that with so much noise in a CRM, it’s often times hard to understand how your BDR’s are performing against each other. This BDC tracker is plain and simple, and it’s proven to give BDC Managers a stronghold on where the team was before they came in.

BDC Tracker KPI’s

At the end of the day, a BDC serves a dealership primarily through servicing incoming sales and service leads. These leads could have come from the internet, or from a lead aggregator, maybe their own website; any number of lead generators. It’s important to be able to capture the lead some place, and then be able to report on the following key performance indicators:

  • Leads worked* (crm needed)
  • Individual Activities Conducted
  • Engaged Leads
  • Out of market Leads
  • Converted Leads (set an appointment)
  • Leads that showed
  • Response Time* (crm needed)
  • Leads that purchased ** (need to get from sales, or have a crm)

Collaboration is key to success

While the process listed above is manual on 5/8 points, most of it can be done without a CRM. If you have just a handful of BDR’s it may be worth doing this exercise for a couple of days. Getting your CRM setup properly while your team is using this process is a very important step.
